Your Pool To Get Underwater Surveillance Cameras?

I've never seen this before. Am I missing out on a new trend or is this a weird deal?

In the UK, evidently they are installing cctv cameras underwater to monitor swimmers, ostensibly for safety purposes and to see if people are drowning.

"The CCTV devices will send high-resolution images to a bank of screens at the poolside areas, where lifeguards will monitor any swimmers who may get into difficulties."

On that note, I am curious how often pools use surveillance cameras to monitor swimmers in real time.

I get the application of after hours monitoring to see if someone goes in but while the pool is open, I am not so sure of the use, especially installing them underwater.
